Sloppy Joes

I've been working on this one a while now, with a few so-so results.  This time, I nailed it.

I made homemade french fries to go along with it, so I had a bunch of happy kids. 

Sloppy Joes
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
- 1 small (or 1/2 medium) onion, diced
- 1 small green pepper, diced
- 1 tsp garlic
- 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
- 1 cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- salt and pepper

Brown meat in large skillet with the onion, green pepper and garlic.  Cook until done, then drain off any excess fat.

Add mustard, ketchup and brown sugar.  Stir to combine, then reduce heat and simmer on low for 30 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste. 

Makes about 8 Sloppy Joes.
